Celio extends 'smartphone terminal' line

Bigger screens and keyboards for your phone

The essential guide to IT transformation

Celio is convinced that some people don't want to lug around a smartphone and a notebooks, so it’s expanded its Redfly smartphone terminal range by two models.

Celio's Redfly C8N: has an 8in screen

If you’re not in the know, the Redfly range aims to overcome the drawbacks of the smartphone, namely its small screen and keypads, by simply displaying their UI on a larger screen with an attached large-format Qwerty keyboard.

Redfly family members make use of the phone’s CPU because they don’t have their own.

The Redfly C7: spot the differences?

The original C8 model – reviewed here - had an 8in, 800 x 400 display. But the less featured of the new duo – the C7, has a smaller 7in screen and supposedly “lightweight” battery capable of five hours' life. It also weighs in at just under 680g.

Celio’s also launched a flagship model: the C8N. It has an 8in display and the added benefit of a “Redfly media port” that’ll display content from an iPhone, iPod, Zune or digicam as well as the connected smartphone.

Both Redfly devices hook up to Windows Mobile smartphones.

The Redfly C7 will be available later this month for around $230 (£152/€181), whilst the C8N will cost $300 (£200/€237) when it comes onto the market early in December.

The C7 will be available in the UK through Celio partner Expansys for £183. The original is still on sale, for £160.
